Brief History

Twin towns or sister cities are a form of social agreement between towns, cities, counties, provinces, regions and even between countries in geographical distinct areas to promote cultural and commercial ties. The modern concept of town twinning, conceived after the second world war in 1947, was intended to foster friendship and understanding between different cultures as an act of peace and reconciliation, and to encourage trade and tourism. Cromer signed an oath with Crest over three decades ago on the 21st of September 1980.
